A reality TV show personality was arrested early today on a count of domestic battery, according to Metro Police.

Larissa Dos Santos Lima, who appeared last year on season six of “90 Day Fiancé,” is accused of beating her husband, who also appeared on the TLC show, police said.

Metro officers were dispatched about 9:20 p.m. Thursday to the 8400 block of Opal Splendor Avenue, where Dos Santos Lima’s husband alleged he was the victim of domestic violence, Officer Jay Rivera said.

Dos Santos Lima was not there when officers arrived, but about three hours later, she summoned police to a friend’s house in North Las Vegas, alleging she was the victim in the incident, Rivera said.

The couple were interviewed by detectives, and an investigation determined Dos Santos Lima, 32, was the main aggressor, Rivera said. She was arrested about 5 a.m. today and jailed on a single count of domestic battery, Rivera said.

She remained at the Clark County Detention Center this afternoon on $3,000 bond, according to jail records.

The “90 Day Fiancé” show follows a couple — one a U.S. citizen and the other from another country — as they decide whether to get married before the visiting partner’s “fiancé visa” runs out, according to the show’s website.

“The couples must marry before their visas expire in 90 days, or the visiting partner will have to return home. They’ll have to overcome language barriers, culture shock and skeptical friends and family — all with a clock that starts ticking the moment they step foot on U.S. soil,” the website says.
